The day of the tournament has come and now it is time to see if Lisa and Starshine can repeat the great ride from the forest. Sabine will be the opponent and she obviously doesn’t like Lisa, but Lisa won’t let that get her down. She has found good friends in the other girls, and most of all in Starshine.
This is the tournament day! I’d better go and talk to Mr Herman and the girls so I’m fully prepared.
New objective: “The day of the competition. I’d better talk to Mr Herman.”
Walk over to the others near the fence of the competition arena.
So the day has come, Lisa. You’ve already proven what a courageous and resourceful girl you are. This is a race between you and Sabine.. Kaahn is fast, but Starshine should have a fair chance.
I’m cheering for you, Lisa. I hear that you play music, too? No matter how this turns out, I’d love to hear you play someday. Here’s my number. Give me a call when you have the time.
In comes Sabine. Oh joy…
Hi, Lisa. Today you and that stupid albino horse will be so humiliated Oh, hi, Josh. What are you doing slumming with the punk girl?
Hi Sabine, hi Kaahn – I’m just wishing her good luck, that’s all.
Go get her, Lisa. Now get up in the saddle and believe in yourself… And in Starshine.
Go and mount Starshine to get ready for the race.
The race is divided into three rounds. To complete one round, you must manage three laps around the race track.
The first one over the finish line after three laps is the winner of the round!
The best of all three rounds will be the overall winner of the tournament!
It’s time to start.
You’re now taken to the starting line of the race.
You know the rules. Remember, three laps, three rounds. Best of all three rounds is the winner. Let the best rider win!
New objective: “I need to beat Sabine in at least two of the three competition heats”
It is not impossible to pass Sabine if she gets ahead of you, but it is easier to win if you pass her right at the beginning. She is clumsy and runs into the hay bales around the track (especially the ones around the two short turns). These bales can get pushed into your way and cause you to lose ground in the race.
The races get tedious, but they are short and easy to win.
Win at least two of the three to win the tournament.
If you do not win the tournament, you will have to repeat all three races.
You did it, Lisa! I’m so happy that you decided to come to the stables.
You did great, Lisa! It’s really funny because this whole thing with Starshine has really made us all – Linda, Alex, you and me – very good friends.
Yes, it is great, and I’m sure this is the beginning of a long and wonderful friendship.
